republican party about this guy, president obama, and they complain about him day in and day out. understandable. they don't respond strategically to him. why not? >> we have weak leadership, lou. i have to say that. i like boehner, i do, but we have weak leadership in the party. we need to get back to advocacy. when obama states something, don't let him win the target. you stand on your platformment we're not doing that. lou: what is the deficiency here? i mean, the guy's, you know, the people around here -- some are bright guys. >> i think you make the opposite argument in the last election, lou. they have no narrative, no argument for economic growth, job creation, stimulating the economy, and offering growth, hope, and opportunity. lou: they don't have a response to class warfare rhetoric. >> that's it. they did pass a bill dealing with the budget, many things, harry reid hasn't, but the message is not out there. we have a narrative, but we don't have the leadership.
